Recipe by Irmgard

I found this recipe in the Toronto Sun. Although I made the cookies with salted butter as directed, the feedback I got was that the cookies were too salty. Next time, I would make them with unsalted butter and just add a little salt to bring out the flavour of the chocolate. Use your own judgment.
